Tuesday CONFIRMED: DISNEY VILLAINS WILL NOT WEAR MASKS - Walt Disney World is reopening in a few short years. Will the bad guys be spreading disease?

“Open” Disney Springs a ghost town; no one is there

Serious. Like, nobody. Cast members, shoppers, looters. We weren't even there. DISNEY SPRINGS, FL -- Disney Springs announced their reopening in May, and the Internet nearly shutdown in excitement. Most assumed that the Walt Disney World shopping district (so called because you can't buy stuff anywhere else on WDW property) would be packed.

Pixar announces 2021 coronavirus-themed film: “VIRAL”

It's the story of a misunderstood virus just wanting to be loved. EMERYVILLE, CA -- Disney Pixar Studios has announced a new feature film release for 2021: "VIRAL."  A press release for the film describes the protagonist as "Covie, a young virus struggling with loneliness, in a world that wants nothing to do with him." Covie "once had a beloved friend and host, an elderly food stall vendor in an unnamed eastern country." [Ed.: He dies in the first ten minutes, right? Dang it, ... Read more
